Trailer: Netflix’s new ‘Dahmer’ series looks scary

Netflix has a new TV series premiering this week about the life and crimes of a notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. What does the show, which is the title Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Storyso disturbing is not only Dahmer’s horrific crimes (although indeed they are horrific), it’s that he was able to continue committing these heinous acts for so long without anyone stopping them – despite multiple opportunities.

As the new trailer for the show suggests, the police had several run-ins with Dahmer (played on the show by Evan Peters) over the years, but he continued to evade punishment for his crimes for some reason. The trailer also sets up Niecy Nash‘s Glenda Cleveland as the other pivotal character in the show. She is a neighbor of Dahmer, who suspects that he is up to something, but cannot get the police to take her warnings seriously. This leads to some truly disturbing sequences where she knows terrible things are happening but is helpless to stop them. Watch the trailer below:

Here is the series’ official synopsis:

Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer brutally took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities affected by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous ride in plain sight for over a decade.

Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story premieres on Netflix tomorrow, September 21.
